That’s right, I’m outta here. Haven’t seen me around much? Yeah, well, I’ve been busy. But geez, people, this place has gone straight to the cats. And as a dog person, I can’t take it any more.

Nocatz – you with me?

Pony Party: Windows Haiku

Hi all. I hope your weekend was better than mine. My computer is completely on the fritz. It blue-screened about ten times on Saturday, despite Check Disk saying all was fine. So, I don’t know if I can host this afternoon’s Pony Party. I’ll try, though!

So, in light of my computer disaster, might I offer up some Windows haiku. This is a modification of a Windows haiku I saw in the 90s, which referred to NT.

Windows XP crashed

I saw the blue screen of death

No one hears my screams


Superbowl Open Thread

It’s Giants 3, Pats 7, with 0:59 left in the first half.

So far, there have been a few funny commercials, but nothing of Bud.Weis.Er. fame.

Who do you want to win? Who do you think will win? I’m voting for Particle Man.

[Update: 5:44 left in 3rd Q]: Pats just tried throwing on 4th down. Oopsie. It would have been a 49-yard field goal attempt. Now the Giants have it.

[Update: 11:46 left in 4th Q]: First down at the 5 for the Giants! The score is still 3 Giants, 7 Pats. Hopefully, not for long.


[Update: 4:12 left in 4th Q]: Eek! Pats inside the 30.

[Update: 2:42 left in 4th Q]: Pats score. FRAK!

[Update: 1:20 left in 4th Q]: Giants still driving…

Update: 0:35 left in 4th Q]: TOUCHDOWN GIANTS!!!!!!!!!

Update: 0:01 left in 4th Q]: Belichick leaves the field. Sore loser.


The Craven: An Ode to Larry Craig

Cross-posted in Orange.

Once inside a bathroom dreary, while I pondered weak and weary

Over many a quilted rolls of tp on the bathroom stall door

While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping

Again some one gently tapping, tapping ‘neath my chamber door.

‘Tis some visitor,’ I muttered, ‘tapping ‘neath my chamber door –

Only this, and nothing more.’
